Butt Poses for Boudoir Photos

As a boudoir photographer, one of the most common areas my clients like to highlight is their booty for their boudoir photos. To help make this region pop there’s two main positions I like to direct my clients from for the best butt poses.

The first is from the standing position facing away from the camera. The second is while prone on her tummy. From both of these positions there’s a multitude of ways to enhance her curves. This post will show you some of my go to poses I use to enhance this region for my clients at their photoshoots.

Standing Butt Poses For Boudoir Photos


The big trick to making her booty look good from the standing position is to have her face away from the camera and push her butt toward you or to the side. This will make her butt look bigger because anything brought closer to the camera will get accentuated, while everything pushed away will look smaller. 

Although most women usually dislike the idea of making their butt look larger, this move almost always enhances her curves in a way she’ll appreciate. The reason this tends to work so well is because by pushing her butt toward the camera, her waist will naturally get pushed away from the camera. This will make her waist look smaller by comparison. The enhancement of her hip to waist ratio is the key to enhancing her booty.

Additionally, when directing her to push her butt toward the camera, it’s almost always a good idea to have her push one butt cheek toward the camera. Biasing one butt cheek toward the camera will help build extra curves into her body and will allow you to further finesse her hip to waist ratio.

Butt Poses For Boudoir Photography Lying Prone

The second way I like to direct women for boudoir photos that will enhance her booty is from the prone position while she lays on her tummy.

There are two main tricks I use to make her butt look shapely from this position. The first is by having her bring one one knee up into her tummy like she would for an army crawl. The second is to have her come up on both knees and bring her head as close to the floor or bed as possible.

In both cases, the idea is basically to make her butt higher than the rest of her body. By directing her into these positions you’ll also be able to cue her to arch her lower back which will help make her boudoir poses more sensual for obvious reasons. 

Once you direct her in a flattering position you’ll basically want to walk around her and capture her from all angles. With precise lighting, it’s possible to make even edgy boudoir poses from the rear tasteful by hiding her genitalia in shadow.
